If you are looking for an alternate way to hide or remove the category archive title as shown as “Category Archives:Titles” in your archive pages, you got it here! This method is easier without the need to create a child theme and a functions.phpfile as suggested by the Headway support team.
Hide the Category Archive Title
- Go to the Headway visual editor and click on the “design” tab on the top left hand corner.
- Once in the design mode, click on the Live CSS and add in the following code.
- Save the changes and you will see the words “Category Archives:” is removed including the title of the category but fear not as you are going to add the title back later.
- Still in the visual editor, click on “Grid” tab on the top left hand corner to go to the grid mode.
- Click on the “Blog Index” as you are going to customize the layout for the blog index page.
- You can draw in the header, sidebar, content and footer and do a mirror to these blocks to achieve the layout you already have.
- Once you have all the blocks in place, draw a custom code block above the content block where you are going to add in the title.
- Click on the option at the custom code block and this will bring up the option panel at the bottom of the screen.
- Click on the pencil icon besides the “Content”.
- Type in the title for e.g. “What’s New” and click on “Save” at the top right hand corner to save the changes.
- You can see the title “What’s New” now appears on your page without the annoying word “Category Archives:”.
- You may want to style the title so it looks like the rest.
- You can add in the following CSS code to style it and also add some spacing on top and bottom.
<div style="font-size: 28px; color: #067299; font-family: arial, helvetica; margin: 25px 0 30px 0;">What's New</div>
- If you want a cleaner way to style this, you can add the CSS code in the Live CSS and assign the CSS class to the title.
Hopefully, you will find this useful as I know not everybody is comfortable in messing the PHP code or creating child theme. This will serve as another alternative.
